    We all know that companies names are used for such scams, and obviously have no involvement or knowledge of this. I do feel that anyone that responds to these emails are the fools. I mean really, who in their right mind reads that and thinks it is legitimate when you win something but have to hand over all ur details. Thats insane! If you have won the lottery and it is such a high amount, you would be called-not emailed, and they would want to give you the money not open bank accounts for transfers...come now people get with the programme and stop letting scam artists take you'll for a ride...alot of it is just using your common sense.

    ATTN:MR xxxxxxxxxxxxx.


    THIS IS THE RESULT OF THE LAST MEETING HELD IN THE BANK HALL BY BOARD MEMBERS OF THE STANDARD BANK LONDON ON 02/12/2010.

    THE MONEY IS IN THE SWIFT READY FOR THE TRANSFER, BUT THE VOLT AND THE SECURITY/VOLT BANK SECTION HOLDS THAT AN OFFICIAL FILE CLOSING FEES OF $3500 USD MUST BE MADE TO THEM, SO THAT ALL ENDORSEMENT AND FINAL SIGNING OFF FORMS MUST BE DONE.

    THIS PAYMENT MUST BE MADE TO MR JOHNSON ROBERT OF THE VOLT AND SECURITY SECTION MANAGER.(ADDRESS:25 Dowgate Hill London.EC4R 2SB United Kingdom).

    WE ARE SINCERELY SORRY, FOR THE PAYMENT, AS WE HAVE ALREADY INFORMED YOU THAT THE WHOLE FEES ON THE NEW FUND FOUND WILL NOT BE CHARGED AGAIN, AND SINCERELY, WE WILL NOT CHARGE ON THAT, BUT THIS IS THE ONLY SECTION RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FINAL SIGNING OFF OF THE FUND.

    WE SHALL BE HAPPY, IF YOU DO NOT SEE IT AS ANOTHER RESPOSIBLITY IMPOSED ON YOU, FOR THEY DID NOT ALLOW THE FINAL SIGNING TO BE DONE UNLESS THE PAYMENT IS MADE TO THEM.

    WE WILL TRANSFER YOUR MONEY, AS SOON AS THIS PAYMENT IS MADE AND MR JOHNSON ROBERT SIGNS OFF THE WHOLE AMOUNT 2.4 MILLION USD .

    WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU.

    WE STILL CONGRATULATE YOU ON YOUR SUCCESS FOR THIS MUST BE THE LAST FEES IN THIS TRANSFER.

    WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU.

    THANKS FOR YOUR ANTI-CIPATED CO-OPERATION.

    YOURS FAITHFULLY

    I received a letter from james donald of Ruikang telling me of an Award winning of GBP450, 000. Also cheque issued by Ruikang for an amount of GBP450, 000. The writer asked me to contact Standard Bank Plc which address given at One Circular Road, Isle of Man IMI ISB UK. The writer said that I have won the award money and requested me to submit detail of personal account to Standard Bank Plc. Apart from that the writer also instructed me to write to Standard Bank Plc to transfer GBP22, 500 to Association for International Cancer Research. The money is charity donation. I am skeptical and wondered about the award money plus one new landrover car but I did follow the writer (james donald) instruction and still waiting for the outcome, if the award money is real and genuine. I believe it was scam, created by cyber criminals around the world to cheat innocent people. Whatever it is if the Bank ask for upfront payment, then I suggest ignore the letter, because winning or getting an award money should be made made free, the remitting bank must contact you by phone. Nevertheless, having a cheque written on your name and the cheque was issued by big company, it is another trick that cyber criminals doing smartly but unethical. The Standard Bank Plc and Ruikang must also asnwer to public complaints as it is ruinign their corporate image. From Abd. M H Akmad KK Sabah, Malaysia.
